  • 14.5% Dividend Payer KKR Quadrupled Its Economic Net Income In 2012 - More Growth Ahead [View article]
    I agree , I knew the payout wasn't close to 14%. Author admits he knows it's not accurate but puts it in the title.Then he acts like a donkey when people question his article's veracity and accuracy.I'm deleting from my follow list. This compensation per page view makes the site rediculous.authors are trying to make a living with outrageous titles and copying tons of data verbatim from other sites to increase compensation ,I find myself wading thru more and more pablum on a daily basis

  • Natural Gas Price Spike Will Be Bigger And Come Sooner Than Expected [View article]
    AGREE WITH UNG comment. if nat gas rallies you'll be lucky to capture 50%of move due to contango in futures markets.that author would suggest going long.this pig demonstrates his naivete of nat gas markets. Another writer suggests covered calls . that would only lessen the pain.If i could borrow ung i would short it and buy gaz all day long.perhaps a long position in hgt,erf,sjt,mtr,ect, would be warranted given there sharp sell off and there ability to track nat gas prices higher in the future. even with distribution cuts i'd receive about 6% waiting for a turnaround

  • Accounting Armageddon: Should You Dump Your American Realty Stake And Run For The Hills? [View article]
    All the sellers did today was lock in their losses for the lawsuits to follow .They can expect to get about 15 cents a share! An error of Less than 10 percent on Affo? That is a rounding error given all the mergers and acquisitions done lately. I have yet to meet any non Cpa executive who has enough accounting knowledge to spot an error that small. I bought 2000 shares at $8. The $10 price target will be laughable by January

  • 12 REITS Could Leap On Increased Refinancing [View article]
    I don't think this author has a clue about. mreits and how they make money.Refinancing could actually hurt some reits by calling away mortgages that are replaced at lower interest rates. that hurts the net interest spread. The way the author writes you woulf think mreits are mortgge brokers

  • Update: American Capital Agency Announces November Dividend, Our Raise Confirmed [View article]
    TO PUT WRITING FEES IN THE authors pocket ,self promote his positions, and waste my time .A raise from 65c to 66 c .Wooooooooow!
    Jeepers, They obviously didn't want to deal in fractions by paying 21 .667 c
    so they rounded up to 22 c. This "writer" will use any excuse to print an article

  • Prepayment Risk And Fed Spending Aren't The Only Worries For REIT Investors [View article]
    I believe all this fear of rapid prepayments is way overdone. I looked at a chart of gnma and except for a breif blip after the announcement of qe3. the mbs market has been fluctuating in a two percent range since may .This would not indicate a rapid rise in refinancing rates in the near future. I highly doubt that the fed is buying up mortgaes at any price but instead is providing a solid floor for mbs pricing. Anytime I can buy these assets at 90% of book value I'll be in to buy more.These mreits will continue to buyback shares increasing the distribution to the remaining shareholders..In the best case the fed would bid up ridiculously high that the mreits could sell their entire portfolio .go out of business and I'd make a 20%profit. I love these articles ,they help start the panic that allowed me to buy wmc at $17.50 or amtg at $18.50. Thanks for the donations

    Totally biased by his position .show details of how you get the $163 of future distribution. that looks like the $9.25 will last for the next 18 years.

  • American Capital Solidifies Attractive Credentials With Double-Digit Dividend Yield And Price Appreciation Potential [View article]
    I don't see why anyone thinks this firm is the cream of the crop. May 2013 they were under hedged when rates were at there lowest. the Ten year spikes from 1.6% to 3.3% .Book value tanks by 30%. In response the firm swaps into 15 year mbs at the high in yields and misses the rally back to 2.3% in the ten year.
    the firm also added swaps at the highs in yield. Now that rates are low they are extending maturities and removing hedges. They locked in losses at the bottom .If you are wrong about long term rates staying low another massive blow to book value will occur.

  • Annaly Moves Smartly To Lower Hedge Positions, Thereby Increasing Core EPS [View article]
    all your arguments for stable rates were in place in Q2 2013.Bernanke opened his mouth and the 10 year doubled in yield in a week When I bought mortgage reits I assumed hedges were in place to protect against rising long term rates. Obviously the hedges were non existent or wildly ineffective. After the 10 year hits 3.25% they announce put buying to protect the downside- only to see the current rally take the 10 year to 2.4%. Now they sell there puts at a loss and we should be overjoyed
